Pint from Kilkenney's on the Redondo Beach Pier last night for five dollars, sadly went to this bar with Naja's less than a couple hundred feet away, but my friends wanted to meet some people there, the things I do for them sometimes
Color was a golden brown with a third of an inch foamy white head, a little lacing with a murky appearance to it
Smell was sweet malts, with some caramel and sour fruit, also some bready aromas
Taste was nice and would make a great session beer, sweet like the smell seemed, slightly sour finish with a crisp bite at first, some biscuit-like accents, could taste some a little bit of toffee, some lemons and oranges, sweet syrup feel at times, also a hint of nuttiness, the only problem I had with this one was the lack of hops, but a nice beer overall that is easy to put down
Average amount of carbonation and a fairly nice body
Could drink several of these, especially at only four percent alcohol, super light beer that goes down easier than most out there, another good beer from Alaskan
Serving type: on-tap

This particular brew has a magnificent dark amber appearance, though little or no head. The amber has a mild, sweet aroma, nothing special. The taste was disappointing for me quite watery in both mouthfeel and taste. Somewhat sweet at first, hints of citrus and carmel then fades to an okay alcoholic taste. I was expecting a bit more from this beer- I do enjoy my amber ales. I will finish this bottle but will not go back for seconds.
I would recommend to a girl.
